Call for sessions and abstracts: GLP 2018 Asia Conference

Date: February 07, 2018

Global Land Project (GLP) is a global research project of Future Earth. It is an interdisciplinary community of science and practice fostering the study of land systems and the co-design of solutions for global sustainability. The GLP 2018 Asia Conference will discuss the theme of Transitioning to Sustainable Development of Land Systems through Teleconnections and Telecouplings.

The teleconnections and telecouplings offer conceptual frameworks to evaluate socio-economic and environmental interactions over distances. In order to transition to environmental sustainability, the frameworks are helpful to measure drivers and impacts of the interactions, and to model the interactions from global to local scales. The goal of this conference is to provide, from global to local, interdisciplinary sustainability solutions, which can be covered by the themes:

  • Urban rural teleconnections
  • Integrated regional models
  • Modelling land system change
  • Land use drivers and impacts
  • Telecouplings of Land use systems
  • Trade-offs for land use and conflict
  • Land-ocean-atmosphere processes
  • Land change and ecosystem services/biodiversity
  • Land management systems
  • Other relevant topics
